It’s a big step forward for local racing star Justin Allgaier.
The Riverton native will compete in every race this year on NASCAR’s senior circuit, the Sprint Cup. Allgaier finished fifth in NASCAR’s Nationwide series this past season. He ran in a handful of Sprint Cup races in the fall, performing well enough to get picked up for this year.
Springfield-based Brandt Professional Agriculture will be the main sponsor of Allgaier’s Number 51 Chevy for 21 of the 36 Sprint Cup races this season.
